August Update for Nicky

Nicky has been doing great. She’s very affectionate, loves her foster family, and is playful but also very laid back. Her foster family told us Nicky is often a sleepy dog and likes to settle down on a soft bed or place around the house to catch a nap.

Nicky still doesn’t care for other dogs very much and she tenses and sometimes growl when they approach her uninvited. They have been walking her and exposing her to more dogs and people which seems to have helped desensitize her. She even spent a little time at a dog daycare and seemed to be ok with it.

She’s learned how to stay and lay down and sits when asked, walks well on a leash, and comes when called. Overall, Nicky is having a nice time with her foster family, who will soon be her FOREVER FAMILY!
